Our family group of 16 just got off the Grand Princess after ten wonderful days in Alaska and Victoria. This was my second time to Alaska and it was just as fun as the first. This time we went to the newer port, Icy Strait Point, and ... Read more

I chose this cruise to explore Alaska. The ship itself was great but the embarkation was absolutely terrible. Huge lines in customs and even that we had booked a penthouse suite, we were all in a very long line. The Cabin was very ... Read more

This extended family of 8 cruise was my mother's wish to celebrate her 80th birthday. As first time cruisers, my husband and I were already wanting to do it again before we disembarked! We can't say enough about the Discovery/Animal Planet ... Read more

In January 2016 we found out about this cruise to the British Isles. A stop in LeHavre/Normandy is what sold us on it. Finally time to go! We flew to Heathrow and took the National Express bus down to Winchester for two nights before ... Read more

Embarkation was easy though we did arrive before our allotted time. It was busy but they know what they are doing!! The state room was quite spacious with a comfortable Queen sized bed, corner unit housing a TV & a fridge, dressing ... Read more

We really enjoyed our cruise! Second cruise for me, first cruise for husband, son and son's girlfriend. There seem to be some bad reviews for this itinerary/ship but for us we like it! We arrived in Seattle on Friday night to ensure ... Read more

Staff was great except one very rude tech guy in internet signup area. He grabbed my wife's tablet, made unrequested and un-needed changes including deleting some shortcuts having nothing to do with the cruise while saying "let me do ... Read more

I choose because it has the ports in North Europe I wanted to go and heard that Princess has the best food of all cruise lines. Disappointed. The food in the 16 deck buffet is not good, almost same food every day. Hardly any cold cut, they ... Read more

This is my 3rd cruise on Princess and I have been on 2 cruises on Royal Carribean. I think I will seriously reconsider going back to Princess cruises for a very long time. I felt discriminated against because my family was Asian (although ... Read more

We chose this cruise as it suited us for the dates available and for the destinations in ports of call. Quite honestly felt that the standards had slipped considerably in the sanitising department. We had just come off another cruise ... Read more

I was on the Star Princess's last Alaska Cruise in September with my children and son-in-laws. I came down with the flu the first night out and was sick the entire cruise. Saw nothing to speak of and stayed in my interior cabin. ... Read more

I have been on about 50-60 cruises, so I would think that I am a seasoned traveler and know what to expect for my money. To say that the cruise staff is poorly managed would be an understatement. This is a beautiful and stately ship. ... Read more

Quick one day repositioning cruise to Seattle from Vancouver on the May long weekend for Canadians. Embarkation took an hour although I heard it took later arrivals a few hours, the key is to know what kind of traffic the port will be ... Read more

We chose this trip for the itinerary and had a wonderful time. The experience onboard was just average, but provided convenient transportation to Ireland, N. Ireland, Scotland, and one day in France. Following a pre-visit to London, we ... Read more

Embarkation was very smooth. I think the secret for this was the fact that they let people into the terminal only at their allocated time to board. There was not the usual 1000 people in the terminal all clambering to get aboard. 20 ... Read more

This was our first cruise with Princess, and our first to Alaska. We did a four day land tour before the cruise, all with Princess. We were a group of 12, some family, some friends. We were not very impressed with the land portion. ... Read more

I strongly agree with all the points that a previous contributor-'cherub flashpoint', has already noted; impolite security staff who have no ability to smile, waiting staff that hound you constantly for drinks( God help you if you try to ... Read more
